Subject: Watch for Bernard Gorcey cameo
Leo Gorcey's father Bernard (who later became "Louie" in the Bowery Boys films, '46-'56) did around 8 cameos as different characters in these East Side films.

Here he's as a telegram delivery man. He and Leo do an old Abbott & Costello comedy bit that's amusing.

Note that the ever-changing "Gabe" is a criminal in this one, and many regulars are missing (Scruno, Danny, Whitey) due to being drafted into the Army.

Hey, guys!
When you write a review, how about avoidin' any plot info. It's a pain to release information before we view the flick, then, when we is watchin' it, we know what's gonna happen at the end.

So, please, please, do not give away the plot ahead of time.

Subject: Semi tuff
Sort of tough and also sort of silly in this movie, the boys are not the tough guys they first were nor as silly as they get later on. But they want to get rid of muggers in the neighborhood here, even though they were the muggers earlier on in their career. They rescue a rich guy from thugs. It turns out that one of the muggers was the rich guy's own son. The son resists reform till he finds out his older brother was killed in WW II. On his way to confess, he gets snatched by hoods. The East Side Kids to come to the rescue.

Timeless movie-making.
It is impossible to watch any of these movies and not be reminded of something that goes much deeper than the zany antics and mayhem on display.
Even so incomparable a word-smith as Shakespeare, I believe, would have been impressed by the economy of dramatic presentation and the almost effortless fluency of "acting" displayed in these works.
Crisp, clean dialog, wordplay that manages to redefine as much as invigorate the typical -- these short films are certainly one of American culture's most significant, and endearing, achievements.

Too bad gangs today aren't more worried in stopping and preventing crime than causing or starting it.
